The Worst Crimes U.S. Presidents Have Been Accused Of
Share this @internewscast.com

On January 17, 1998, the Drudge Report shared a “BLOCKBUSTER REPORT” that revealed a sexual affair between a young White House intern and the President of the United States, Bill Clinton. The next day, Drudge identified the intern as 23-year-old Monica Lewinsky, who was due to give a deposition in the Paula Jones case. According to People, Jones accused President Clinton of sexual harassment, back when he was Arkansas’ governor. Seeking $750,000 in damages, Jones’ case would explode after Lewinsky’s deposition, who herself denied any sexual relations with President Clinton. What neither Lewinsky nor the public knew was that Linda Tripp, her friend at the Pentagon, had recorded Lewinsky speaking of an affair with Clinton.

As the controversy unraveled, Clinton addressed the nation on January 26, 1998, infamously declaring, “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky.” The following July, Lewinsky turned over a semen-stained dress to investigators. A month later, Clinton became the first sitting president to testify before the Office of Independent Counsel, as the subject of a grand jury investigation. He admitted to an “inappropriate” relationship, but denied that he did anything to “lie, hide, or destroy evidence, or to take any unlawful action.”

Consequently, the case was given to the House of Representatives, which impeached Clinton on perjury and obstruction of justice, who became the second U.S. president ever impeached. The five-week trial concluded on February 12, 1999, with Clinton acquitted on both charges.
